|Year-on-year variation at constant exchange rates||+7%||+0%||+12%||+5%||+8%||n.m.|
Olivier Piou, Chief Executive Officer, commented: "The first quarter of 2014 delivered further revenue growth with different geographical performances: in Asia and North America the activity expansion was rapid, and it grew at a slower pace in Europe and Latin America. Promising market developments and contract wins confirm the conditions for the seasonal acceleration along the year: demand for EMV solutions is rapidly increasing in the US, mobile contactless services are ramping up thanks to simpler, customer-focused go-to-market initiatives, and demand is high in the government market globally. We confirm our outlook for the year and the longer term objectives of our multi-year development plan."Basis of preparation of financial information Ongoing operations For a better understanding of the current and future year-on-year evolution of the business, the Company provides revenue from "ongoing operations" for both the 2014 and 2013 reporting periods.
